I have just completed a CLC Peeler Skiff designed by John C. Harris. It is 15ft long with a beam of just over 6ft. I will use it for fishing and general messing about on Lake Sinclair, GA. It took me about a year to build out of okoume plywood and epoxy. The plywood is laser cut on cnc machines by CLC (Chesapeake Light Craft). She is named “Lilah” after my grandmother who helped me learn to fish. Boat building is some different that furniture making, but problem solving and general woodworking skills are the same challenge. I believe boat building can become addictive and I’m already looking for a traditionally built sailboat to build out of solid wood to learn some of those new skills next.
